Trial and Error
I'm hoping that by summer I'll be able to take a route like this.
I stuck to my commitment to start climbing -- got some shoes and hit the gym with my buddy Lucas to dive right in. I felt right at home for the most part, I climbed when I was younger and the muscle memory came right back. Unfortunately I've gained a lot of weight since then and lifting myself up required a lot more strength than I have to give. So an important factor for me moving forward is to develop much more strength in my upper torso and arms. That coupled with hopefully 2 climbing sessions a week will give me a good start towards my goal of getting some excellent climbing shots this summer.
